Educate Maine first published our Education Indicators report over a decade ago, highlighting information on ten key data points throughout the education pipeline. In recent years, due to a variety of factors – such as improvements in data collection and reporting through the state’s Data Warehouse; upheaval in the education system due to the coronavirus pandemic; and other societal shifts – we’ve expanded the report to include multiple measures that reflect education access, progress, and success for Maine people from birth through adulthood.
Our objective with this report is to provide an accurate, up-to-date, and well rounded snapshot of Maine’s education system. We compile and publish reliable data that aims to facilitate a diverse audience’s understanding of the education continuum, including information on how opportunities and outcomes vary by student characteristics.
The report strives to be a resource for educational stakeholders at all levels by establishing a holistic framework that holds Maine students at the center. By offering a comprehensive overview of our education system and identifying areas for improvement, we encourage continuous reflection, dialogue, and purposeful action to support ongoing efforts aimed at enhancing educational outcomes for all learners in Maine.
